Returns a Vector containing the values after the $n-th element of the current Vector


public function skip(
  int $n,
): Vector<Tv>;

The returned Vector will always be a subset (but not necessarily a proper subset) of the current Vector. If $n is greater than or equal to the length of the current Vector, the returned Vector will contain no elements. If $n is negative, the returned Vector will contain all elements of the current Vector.

$n is 1-based. So the first element is 1, the second 2, etc.


  • $n - The last element to be skipped; the $n+1 element will be the first one in the returned Vector.

Return Values

  • Vector<Tv> - A Vector that is a subset of the current Vector containing values after the specified $n-th element.
